Miller-Coors Clean City Waters

  1. 1. Ensuring a Secure Future ThroughWater StewardshipKim MarottaVice President Corporate ResponsibilityOctober 2011
  2. 2. Global Crisis on WaterNot only affecting communities and governmentsPrivate sector has an enormous stake in helpingUN Global Compact
  3. 3. Water Availability Domestic .5% Water 7% Industry 23% Agriculture 70%Source: WBCSD
  4. 4. Water is a Material Issue For Business Two most critical and potentially material issues from a financial perspective: • Water scarcity in agriculture • Water scarcity for production
  5. 5. “Changes in the availability or quality of water…can have material effects on companies”
  6. 6. Shared ResponsibilityIn order to achieve realchange, we must collaborate
  7. 7. • Direct operations efficiency• Supply Chain and Watershed Management• Collective Action• Public Policy Dialogue• Community Engagement• Transparency
  8. 8. Ensuring a Secure Future through Water StewardshipWe are committed to:• Water efficiency• Waste water management• Water supply assessment• Water footprinting• Community investment
  9. 9. Water Efficiency 4.2 4 3.8 2015 Goal 3.6 Reduce water 3.4 usage by 15% to achieve a 3.5:1.0 3.2 water-to-beer 3 ratio 2008 2009 2010 2015 Our Fort Worth Brewery is the most water efficient, with a water-to-beer ratio of 3.42 to 1.
  10. 10. Wastewater Quality &Management• Anaerobic digestors turn wastewater into renewable energy at California and Texas breweries• North Carolina, Ohio and Georgia breweries use aerobic wastewater treatment facilities and effluent is recycled and land-applied• Virginia brewery installed $10 M membrane bioreactor that removes phosphorous and nitrogen
  11. 11. Watershed Risk Assessment Study Milwaukee Golden ID Trenton Shenandoah Irwindale Eden Fort Worth Albany
  12. 12. MillerCoors Fort Worth BreweryInvolved with local partners Water As A Crop™
  13. 13. • Soil erosion significant problem because of the velocity that water moves across the landscape.• Pilot- Hold water on the land longer, improving water infiltration of the soil, reducing runoff and improving economic viability of farms..
  14. 14. Water Footprinting: Value ChainCrop Cultivation Crop Processing Brewing Distribution Consumer Energy Transport Energy Transport Disposal Fertiliser/ Energy Transport Recycling pesticide Crop Imports Packaging Crop Growth (rain fed/ Direct Water Raw Materials irrigated) Use Waste Direct Water Use
  15. 15. Water Footprint 90%
  16. 16. Water Supply ChainRisk AssessmentPilot Studyin the Snake RiverValley in Idaho
  17. 17. • Visibility into agricultural supply chain risks• Focus efforts to help suppliers preserve water resources• Prioritize needs to develop alternative sources of barley supply• Identify the more secure growing areas within the region
  18. 18. The Nature Conservancy
  19. 19. Phase I - Data Analysis andPublic Input• Ground and surface water and model • High temps, decrease flows, increase sediment, invasive species • Measure restoration activities• Watershed enhancement plan- 20 years (prioritize)• Eight public meetings• Purchase easements
  20. 20. Phase I – Water ConservationProjects• Increase set backs from water bodies• Repair riparian buffers• Water Conservation Toolbox: • Variable rate irrigation • Change nozzles for more efficient sprays • Soil moisture monitoring
  21. 21. Partnership with The Nature Conservancy and our Barley Farmers
  22. 22. Phase II:• Expand ground and surface water model• “Landscape Atlas” for navigating conservation projects• Idaho Energy Savings Program• “Showcase” Barley Farm
  23. 23. Showcase Barley FarmWater Saving Implements: • Sprinkler package • Smart panel • End gun shut off9 full pivots8,784,200 gallons/day
  24. 24. Estimated waterreduction of 35%600,000,000gallons of watersaved
